As 3tate president, she presides over executive council meetings and sessions of the state conven- tion; attends the national FHA convention in the summer of 1956; and has many other duties as head of this organization. The FHA members work together to develop desirable social qualities and to promote better home life for themselves and their families. Their motto is ’’Toward New Horizons." This expresses the purpose of the organization in learn- ing to live better today so that their lives and those of their families might be better tomorrow. Because of the large number of members this year, the Canton High School FHA unit was divided into two units, the Senior High and the Junior High groups. Each unit had separate officers and meetings. The two groups worked together in many of the yearb activities, however. As a national project, they were active in promoting international good will through UNESCO. They belonged to the Dollar a Month Club in support of the Crippled Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls. A tea was given for the homecoming royalty and their mothers in October. The girls prepared and served the chicken dinner to the FFA father-son banquet in November. Teas were given and dresses modeled for their mothers in January and again in May. In February, the FHA sponsored the Sweetheart Dance and presented an assembly program.ROGER PETERSON The VlcePresident assists at all times in directing the work of the organization and presides over the meet- ings in the absence of the President.

GUEST SPEAKERS Burma, Finland, and Ceylon Father and Son BanquetPAT DRAMAT'0" ORATORi DICK ESTHER HUMOROUS POETRYTHE EDITORS The members of the annual staff have worked very hard to record the school events of the year. The pic- tures were taken by the school pho- tographer as each activity and event occurred. Most of the work wa3 com- pleted during the sixth and seventh periods of the day. With the co- operation of the staff and Mr. Kur- tenbach, our book finally found its way to the printers on schedule. Special recognition must be given the editors, Beverly Anderson and Pat Sweetman, whose constant efforts to keep the work progressing even when, at times, it seemed as though the deadline could not possibly be met. And, for the many staff members who spent many extra hours working on this book, there is the satisfaction of knowing that this has been a big Job well done. We had our days of toil and drud- gery and we burned the midnight oil, too, with, "What's a synonym for en- joyed?" and "How many c's in Bacca- laureate?" However we had fun with our paste pots, scissors, pictures, and pens, making our annual full of memories to remember.

Hospital in Sioux Palls in the early part of December. Then, on December 14 and 15, the groups took part in the twenty-first annual Living Pictures program held in the Canton High School auditorium. All of the vocal ensembles won superior ratings at the regional music contest for small groups. Superior ratings were also won by two mezzo-sopranos (Karen Warness and Anne Hoover) and two tenors (Drew Johnson and Rolf Eiesland). The vocal students began the year's activities by sponsoring a magazine sub- scription sale in October. The proceeds earned from the 3ale were used to purchase a console record player and a Baby Grand piano. The record player wa3 purchased in December and the piano in March.Eight choir members represented Canton High School at the All-State chorus convention at Aberdeen on November 18 and 19. The highlight of the convention was the presentation of a public concert by the 150 All-State Chorus members. The choir attended the third annual "Choral Festival sponsored by Augustana College. Choirs from the surrounding areas practiced under the direction of Dr. A. J. Running and presented a concert as a mass choir. Drew Johnson qualified for participation in the music Educators National Con- ference held in St. Louis, Missouri. Only three students were chosen for attendance at the conference from the state of South Dakota.
